Composite Decking

In Grafton, you can find composite lumber decking from Futurewood. It is an excellent choice for your deck. Incorporating recycled polyolefin sourced from post-industrial waste, rice husks, and reclaimed hardwood timber is a cornerstone of the Futurewood approach.

Rain Or Shine

Living in Grafton means dealing with different weather conditions. Rain or shine, this decking keeps its shape. No need to worry about wet feet making you slip, too! The surface of our composite timber decking is safe to walk on. Kids and pets will love it as well. They can run around without fear of sharp splinters hurting them.

Benefits of Composite Decking

Composite decking offers a range of benefits, including durability, low maintenance, fade and stain resistance, eco-friendliness, and cost-effectiveness compared to timber decking.

Durability and longevity

Composite decking lasts long. It beats wood decking in strength. You will not worry about rot or splinters with it. The deck stays strong even when the weather changes a lot. Your feet, kids, and pets are safe on composite decks as they don’t slip easily.

Low maintenance

Composite decking is a joy to own. It does not need lots of care like wood decks. You save time and money on upkeep. There’s no need for yearly stains or paints. Just clean it with soap and water now and then.

Clean, Safe And Family Friendly

The chance of mould growth is lower in composite timber decking, too. This makes it a clean, safe space for your family to enjoy outdoor time together. Plus, unlike timber decking, the colour stays bright for years without fading or staining!

Fade and Stain Resistance

Composite decking is great for outdoor use. It stays the same colour for a long time. This is what we call “fade resistance”. So, even after many sunny days, it will not lose its bright colours.

Wipe Clean

Composite decking also doesn’t stain easily. If you drop food or drinks on it, you only need to wipe them off. This makes composite decking Sydney suitable for parties and family meals in the yard!

Environmentally friendly

Composite decking is good for our planet. It uses recycled polyolefin sourced from post-industrial waste, rice husks, and reclaimed hardwood timber, so we don’t cut down more trees. Mold is a problem in most decks, but not with composite ones. This saves on harsh cleaning chemicals, keeping our rivers clean.

Actual Cost of Timber vs. Composite Decking

Comparing the costs of timber and composite decking involves more than just looking at the upfront price. It’s essential also to consider the long-term maintenance costs and potential replacement. Below is a table that compares the actual costs of timber and composite decking.

Timber Decking Composite Decking
Initial Costs Timber decking often has a lower initial cost compared to composite decking. Even though composite decking may have a higher initial cost, it can be a more cost-effective option in the long run.
Maintenance Costs Timber decking requires regular maintenance, such as sealing, staining, or painting, to maintain its appearance and durability. This can add to the overall cost over time. Composite decking, being low maintenance, does not require staining or sealing. This reduces ongoing maintenance costs.
Long-term Costs With its susceptibility to weathering, warping, rotting, and splintering, timber decking might need frequent repairs or replacement, resulting in higher long-term costs. Composite decking is resistant to weather, warping, and rotting and does not splinter, making it a long-lasting option with lower long-term repair or replacement costs.
Life Span Even with regular maintenance, the life span of timber decking can be shorter compared to composite decking. Composite decking is durable and long-lasting, often with warranties that reflect its durability.

As you can see, while timber decking may seem less expensive upfront, the costs can add up over time with maintenance and potential replacement costs. Despite the higher initial cost, composite decking can provide better value in the long run with its durability, longevity, and low maintenance needs.
